Best corn maze near NYC?

Where's the best corn maze (for adults) an hour away from New York City?

I've never been to a corn maze but it seems like a ton of fun! I'm in the NYC area and am willing to an hour (1.5hrs is pushing it but if doable if it's an a-MAZE-ing.) to find one that is tall (so cheating is hard/impossible) and challenging. What's the best place to hit up?

Bonus points if the corn maze has apple picking near by so my friends and I can make a day out of it!

Lyman Orchards is TWO hours away but is so fantastic! Their shop is adorable and filled with goodies and their sandwiches are truly yummy.

The maze in Stony Hill (Chester, New Jersey) is 10 acres, more than twice the size of the one at Lyman. And it would take just under an hour to get there.

Alstede Farms (Chester, NJ) has one too and it is right up the road from Stony Hill. Alot of other nice fall things to do in the area as well.

I've never been, but there is actually a corn maze in Queens -- at the Queens County Farm Museum in Floral Park.

I see your 1.5 hour caveat, but the only one I know of that is really good is 2 hours away - Headless Horseman. I've been there three times, and always enjoyed myself. However, it does get really crowded, and there's haunted houses, as well. Not sure if that is what you are going for.

Have fun!
